GBP/USD Technical Analysis: Cable retreating from weekly highs and breaking below 1.3200 figure


  • GBP/USD is in a bull trend as the market is trading above its 200-period simple moving average on the 4-hour chart. 
  • GBP/USD is currently having a pullback as it is breaking below the 1.3200 figure. The RSI, MACD and Stochastic indicators are losing momentum suggesting that the pullback might extend further. Supports to the downside can be seen near 1.3150 (September 21 low) and 1.3100 figure. 
  • However, if bulls manage to retake 1.3200 the market is likely going to be contained within the current daily range.
